When pictures speak a thousand words

Meant to blog this last week, but other (actually, quite important) stuff got in the way.

Thanks to Britt Bravo for tipping me off (via Netsquared) about Amnesty’s Eyes on Darfur website, where it is asking supporters to monitor 12 villages in Darfur that they have deemed “vulnerable” to attack via satellite.

Eyes on Darfur - Amnesty International

And get a load of this.

Listen to the gasps from the audience as Microsoft Live Labs Architect, Blaise Aguera y Arcas demos Seadragon and Photosynth at the TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Conference in California.Is it just me, or is the pace of innovation speeding up by the day?

Hat tip to cxpartners.

    And now this too.

    Also on the Darfur issue, it’s interesting to see a Facebook App getting people to use their social networks and video technology to lobby for change.

    The Photosynth and SeaDragon demos at TED were absolutely incredible. I have hardly stopped thinking about it since watching that video a couple of months ago.

    I was talking to a friend while looking at some Flickr photos of a guy who’s set up a mac museum in his basement. There’s what’s been in the last 20-25 years. As the rate of development seems to increase with each new invention/enhancement it’s almost impossible to think about what things will look like in 20-25 years time…without sounding like a 1950′s ‘home of the future’ ad. The only thing that will slow it down is adoption by the public.
